Sometimes you need a parcel to arrive the next day before many people have started work. This may be because you're sending them something that they actually need to do their job, or just that you would like to offer that extra level of customer service - whatever the reason, we do offer a next working day by 9am service at a reduced rate via City Link.
Of course this is a premium service and costs more than if it your parcel was to be delivered by the close of business (usually 6pm). However, a 9am courier delivery may not be as expensive as you might expect.
Also we've just launched a parcel delivery by 7:30am service.
Well, if you're sending some boxed paperwork at 30cm x 30cm x 30cm and weighing 2kg then you can expect to pay around £7.49+vat. If you were happy for a delivery by 12pm then it would be just £10.49+vat.
If we go up to a much larger parcel, say 60cm x 60cm x 60cm and weighing 5kg you may be surprised to know that the price is no more - even if your parcel was 15kg in weight.
If you're booking your parcel to be delivered at any time during the day, why not also have a look at our same day parcel delivery service ? For some locations it may actually work out cheaper - I know it does sound unreal. But its true.
